Teleena, a global enabler of IoT- and MVNO-solutions has today announced a partnership with iPass, a leading provider of global mobile connectivity, to deliver Global Wi-Fi to MVNOs, Telcos, Enterprises and Loyalty partners. Utilizing the iPass SmartConnect™ Software Development Kit (SDK) and API suite, Teleena will deliver fully-tailored and white-labelled global Wi-Fi to its partners.

Teleena will offer customers access to the full iPass Wi-Fi network of more than 53 million hotspots in more than 120 countries. Through the iPass SmartConnect SDK and APIs, Teleena will have access to iPass’ core technologies to activate, authenticate, intelligently connect, and create custom interfaces for presenting and selecting Wi-Fi networks. Ultimately, the partnership between iPass and Teleena creates new business development opportunities for both parties targeting MVNO’s, ISP’s, loyalty programs, enterprises and even integrated mobile technology partnerships.

Teleena’s CEO Timo Smit has high expectations of this partnership, commenting: “Access technologies like 3G/4G and Wi-Fi are converging and clearly complement each other from a provider and user perspective. Partnering with iPass, a leader in global Wi-Fi roaming, is fully in line with Teleena’s strategy and vision of offering best-of-breed connectivity services in the most diverse scenarios. With this service, we now also allow our customers access to SIM-less devices such as Wi-Fi-only tablets and laptops, for example.”

Mato Petrusic, vice president EMEA & APAC at iPass, commented: “Our partnership with Teleena is another example of how our SDK is empowering companies to create and offer Wi-Fi services to their customers. Teleena has been delivering innovative services to MVNOs and telcos for many years, so we are excited by the joint opportunities working together presents.”
